Creative call out - World Heritage Site Day Creative Commission

07 February 2022

To celebrate World Heritage Site Day on 18 April 2022, Durham Cathedral and Durham University are offering local artists and creatives the opportunity to work with eight local schools on a digital heritage trail around the city. 

We're looking for a local artist or creative to deliver: 
- Resources for primary schools, enabling them to design and create an original artwork inspired by the Lindisfarne Gospels Illuminated Letter pages. 
- A digital trail that participants can use a QR code to access which will help guide them around the city and find all of the eight artworks. 

These will form part of the Durham World Heritage Site Day celebrations, which in 2022 have been inspired by the upcoming display of the Lindisfarne Gospels in the North East during autumn 2022.

Deadline: The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on Monday 14 February 2021.
